VISIONET (Visualizing Transcriptomic Profiles Integrated with Overlapping Transcription Factor Networks) is a visualisation web service for cellular regulatory network studies. It’s been developed as a tool for creating human-readable visualisations of transcription factor networks from user’s microarray and ChiP-seq input data. VISIONET’s node-filtering feature provides a more human-readable large networks visualisation compared to CellDesigner and Cytoscape.
R@CMon helped SBI Australia in porting the VISIONET web service into the NeCTAR Research Cloud, enabling rapid development and customisation. VISIONET’s .NET-based framework is now running on a Windows Server 2012 instance inside R@CMon, and it’s now using persistent storage (Volumes) for storing large generated network visualisations. VISIONET is now publicly available to biologists, and user traffic is expected to grow in the near future.
